spon dend chuck todd is traveling with the president. chuck, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, lynn. it's safe to say the events in gaza have overtaken or overshadowed what the president has been working on here in southeast asia. i can tell you this, last night the president was on the phone until 2:30 in the morning, first with egyptians president morsi and then israeli prime minister netanyahu. then back on the phone with morsi. the reason there, obviously talking to netanyahu trying to get a sense of what it would take to prevent him from doing the ground invasion into gaza. the talks with morsi are about, this is the egyptian leader, has the direct contact with hamas. neither united states or israel has that. the decision to send secretary clinton, i'm told by white house aide, is neither an acknowledgment that things are close, nor do they feel as if things are stuck. they're hoping her presence, first in israel and then in the west bank meeting with the palestinian authority, then in cairo could nudge along the process to see if they could get to a point of some
